We don’t know about you, but we’re practically jumping for joy at the fact that fall is right around the corner. Between trips through the corn maze, long hikes admiring the changing leaves, and all those delicious pumpkin-flavored treats, there’s a lot to be thankful for.
As nice as these seasonal activities are, they’re not nearly as fun without the perfect fall outfit—cozy knit sweaters, striped scarves, and matching gold jewelry—ooh la la. And like all fall things—pumpkins, cornstalks, and squash—it’s best to start from the ground up. In other words, shoes. From the classic ankle boot, knee-high, and western boot to the transitional flats, no fall collection is complete without the perfect shoes.
In this guide, we’re walking you through our favorite fall trends and styling tips on the fall shoes women are loving.
Style #1: Western Wear Chic
One of the more unlikely trends on the horizon? The return of western wear. We’re seeing heeled leather boots, suede, and fringe dominating this season, allowing you to strut your stuff the American way, while showing off your sportier side, of course.
There’s no better place to start than with our Legend Faux Leather Western Boots, available in a contemporary white finish. They’re just as easy to wear as they are to pull on. Or, two-step your way into our classy Cassidy Heeled Boots, which feature a silvery lightning design and a slim, feminine profile.
When it comes to fall shoes, women are looking for versatility. If you’re not sure if the cowgirl vibe is your thing, ease into the look with our Saint Slouch Boot in black. The striking suede material will pair nicely with your fave wide-brimmed hat, giving you a chic but rugged look that’s as cute at the coffee shop as it is at the pumpkin patch. They also come in light gray, if you happen to have a Dapple Gray friend you want to coordinate with.
Whether a new trend or a classic style, it's safe to say the western boot is here to stay a while. Yee-haw!
Style #2: The Celebrated Camel Color
While we adore the fall shoe trends, the color is what completes the style, and when it comes to this season, camel is the perfect choice. We love camel everything, from long trenches to blazers and cardigans. Why? Camel is straight up luxe. It’s a neutral tone that works well as a base against opulent autumnal hues like emerald and purple. No matter the material—whether it’s leather, cotton, or wool—camel never fails to elevate a look.
As a shoe material, this shade offers a ton of upsides, such as:
- They hide dirt and stains more easily
- They mask water stains
- They pair well with all kinds of jeans
These factors make camel accessories a natural choice for transitional weather footwear, like booties. Take our Uptown Bootie. This heeled customer fave features a sharply pointed toe and an elastic panel for easy on-and-off action.
The color is also a great choice for versatile loafers and flats, making it an obvious go-to for weekly work attire. Our take? This Berlin Tassel Loafer with fringe and studded detailing. With a low back, these are easy to get into as you enter the office and slip off beneath your desk. That’s what we call a working gal.
Our Saint Slouch Boot in camel is also a winner thanks to its stacked heel and roomy construction. This knee high boot is equally at home on fall leaf peeping tours and fireside wine tastings.
We’ll say cheers to that.
Style #3: What Pairs Well with Jeans?
Jeans are the cherry on top of many fall outfit ideas. We’re all aware of the uproar around jeans that’s been dominating the fashion headlines for the past few years. From flares to cargo-inspired trousers to maxi denim skirts, these new—and old—trends have some of us drooling over fresh changes.
And what time is better for a quick denim refresh than fall?
That said, nothing elevates denim like a good shoe, starting with these dashing Vanderpump Embellished Flats. Flats are timeless and perfect for gals looking for a break from heels. And more and more brands are hopping back on the ballerina bandwagon (we couldn’t be more thrilled).1
These embellished beauties are available in emerald and bubblegum pink, for all your styling needs.
Something about light wash jeans makes us go ga-ga for heels in neutral tones, which is why we’re also digging these Ritz Faux Suede Heels with buckled ankle straps and four inches of breathtaking height. Dress these up with gold anklets and your favorite pair of high rises for an effortless sense of coolness—then watch as heads turn.
